Young Gamers Play Vets To All Their Pets With My Animal Shelter

NEW INTERACTIVE COMPUTER GAME FOR 4-12 YEAR OLDS TO DEVELOP ESSENTIAL LEARNING IN PET CARE

25th May 2007

My Animal Shelter is a new computer game that focuses on the wonderful world of pets and is designed for the young player that has a strong interest in animals. It is a perfect and fun introduction for young individuals that would like to own a pet by teaching them to run an animal shelter and care for unloved and injured animals.

Launched by bhv software, a leading consumer software publisher, the gamer is tasked with aiding the speedy recovery of the animals encouraging the principles of correct animal care; the better you are at your job, the happier and quicker the animals will recover and be back on the road to full health.

The shelter caters for all animals including horses, rabbits, dogs and cats that are all feeling a bit under the weather and need nurturing back to health in a variety of different ways. Activities include organising feed times for all the animals, making sure that the dogs get walked and that the horses get exercised. By providing the animals with food, accommodation and medicine, the player can begin to learn the everyday tasks that are associated with owning and looking after an animal.

The game combines and develops elements of responsibility and caring, by presenting the player with the opportunity to build and develop their very own animal shelter. The game also encourages the young individual to understand and manage costs by finding new means of sponsorship to keep the shelter running.

An uncomplicated and user friendly interface means that the game layout is simple and easy to follow. It also features modern graphics and offers a whole host of ways for a young consumer to interact with the animals from training, playing and taking care of the pet, ensuring that the user is kept entertained and interested.

From a parent's perspective the game can be a great way to emphasize the importance of animal care. My Animal Shelter is the perfect accompaniment for the young child that already has a pet or would like one, as a learning and guidance tool.
